RCMP Emergency Response Exercise at UBC - June 18

From 2009-2010, more than 250 UBC employees received certification through RMS's Occupational First Aid Level One Training.

On June 18, 2013 the RCMP is conducting an large-scale exercise from 8-1 p.m.

Most of the campus will remain open, and the exercise will be limited to the following area on the south section of campus:

  • Forest Sciences Centre, 2424 Main Mall
  • Landscape Architecture Annex, 2371 Main Mall
  • H.R. MacMillan Building, 2357 Main Mall
  • Totem Park Residence - q’ələχən house, 2525 West Mall

During this time drivers should expect road closures on Agronomy Road between West Mall and Health Sciences Mall. There will be pedestrian restrictions along Agronomy Road and on Main Mall near the H.R. MacMillan Building. Follow the link for a map of these closures.

CAUTION: During the exercise people near the buildings involved may expect to hear loud noises, including sirens from emergency vehicles. The exercise will include a number of volunteers who will be acting as bystanders and victims.

UBC Risk Management Services thanks the UBC Community in advance for their cooperation during this RCMP emergency exercise.
